We were impressed when we got to test drive the upcoming 2008 Chevy Tahoe and GMC Yukon Hybrids. Today, GM announced starting prices for these advanced, less-gas thirsty full-size SUVS and going green is going to be costly. The Tahoe two-wheel drive will start at $50,490, while the two-wheel drive Yukon will start at $50,945.
A Tahoe LTZ starts at $36,145 with a similarly well-equipped model hitting $45,680. If the equipment levels match, a $5,000 premium still sounds costly to us.
Four-wheel drive models will cost $53,295 and $53,755 for the Tahoe and Yukon respectively and all prices include a $900 destination charge. Tell us what you think: Is this too much to go green and still roll in a full-size SUV?
